Hack KC 2018

Sunday, October 14 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm • Organized By KC Digital Drive
1712 Main St., 2nd Floor, Kansas City, MO 64108


Join Code for KC for an exciting two day hackathon where we write apps that solve community problems. Do you love coding, design, project management, or community engagement? How does working on open source while solving practical problems sound to you? Then join us for this exciting two day event! Learn more at

The fun doesn’t stop there either! Projects continue well after the hackathon until they are complete. Some apps from previous years have stayed on board for years!

We want to address real problems in our community, such as environmental issues, transportation problems, and many more using open source coding networks.  Our projects are created around the idea that there are real issues in our community that can have a technological solution.  Through collaboration and networking we create a community-based solution and follow through with a team of coders, designers, writers (and more!) over the next six months or more to implement that solution.
